800 Series TEA: Nitrogen Chemiluminescence Detector

Ellutia 800 Series GC Chemiluminescence Detector is very sensitive and simple to use for the detection of traces of organic explosions in many different types of samples; able to quickly identify and analyse for Nitro, Nitroso, and Nitrogen containing compounds.



800 Series TEA: Nitrogen Chemiluminescence Detector

The Thermal Energy Analyser (TEA) has been an industry standard for nitrosamine analysis

All New Design: Since its introduction thanks to its incredible sensitivity and almost infinite selectivity for nitrogen containing compounds. The 800 Series TEA can be interfaced to almost any brand of Gas Chromatograph.

Common Application Areas include forensic trace explosives analysis, tobacco specific nitrosamine analysis, nitrosamines in toys, Nitrosamine in Food, Nitrosamines in Malt & Beer, Nitrosamines in Rubber, Airborne Nitrosamines, Nitrosamines in Childrens Toys, Nitrosamines in Pharmaceutical Drugs

Analysis of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) and N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA)

The risk assessment to determine the potential for nitrosamine content, The 800 Series TEA from Ellutia is particularly applicable the analysis of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) and N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA) which are Class 2A carcinogens that have been found to be present as impurities in several different generic drug substances and drug products used to treat hypertension, that belong to the WHO ‘cohort of concern,’ classified as ‘probable human carcinogens.’

The 800 Series TEA interfaced with Ellutia’s proprietary chemical stripping system is a unique instrument on the market that offers total nitrosamine analysis of pharmaceutical products. The system allows rapid and accurate quantification of the total nitrosamine content of a sample.
